Retro Colors with a Retro Sketch!
Even though this week was extremely busy, I wanted to create a card using the retro CQC126ColourQ Challenge colors and I noticed that the ColourQ was highlighting a new challenge blog from Arielle- Retro Sketches so I decided to use the RS1 sketch.
A brand new challenge with a wonderful idea- each week, a different Design Team member will choose an old "retro" sketch from one of their previous cards and create a new card with the "retro" sketch :-). If you had not had a chance to visit yet, check out both sites for quite a bit of inspiration and join us for some fun!
To create this card:
To create the focal image, de-static a piece of Whisper White with the Embossing Buddy®, stamp the Sunflower background stamp with Versamark® ink, apply Stampin’ Emboss® Brown Embossing Powder (retired) and heat with the Heat Tool. Once cooled, color the petals with a Stampin’ Write Daffodil Delight marker.
Carefully cut around the petals and mount the image onto a piece of Whisper White that has been embossed with the Big Shot™ and the Square Lattice Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder. Mount this onto Pumpkin Pie.
Use the Crimper Tool (had to use a retro tool for this one) and crimp the corners of a piece of Pumpkin Pie cardstock to create the diamond pattern as well as three strips of Early Espresso.
Assemble the layers, add the sentiment and finish off with Metallic Brads.
